A large historical pub that is reputed to be one of the oldest pubs in Newcastle, dating back to the 16th century (1582).

It was formerly a coaching inn and retains its original low ceiling and wooden beams.

The pub is split on three levels with a smart lounge and dining area upstairs with comfortable seating.

The main part of the pub has a long narrow bar with another smaller bar to the side. It also has plenty of seating with tables and chairs, and a large open fire near the main entrance.

The lower level has a small bar with wooden tables and chairs and wooden panelling on the walls.

Free function room upstairs for parties.

Very lively at weekends with a DJ a regular feature, quieter during the week.

All major sporting events are shown with Sky Sports and BT football matches, Rugby six nations matches and Horse Racing featured.

Is used by a mixed clientele of diners, shoppers and people on nights out in the Bigg Market. Live music in bar with no cover charge.

Open Mic night on Thursday and Sunday. Seating area outside which is used in the summer. Free WiFi.

Disabled access to main bar good but difficult to toilets as upstairs. Toilets are small and reasonable.
